Relax! It's just a playlist

The FMA has such an abundance of music from all genres, and even though I've been swimming through it for years, I'm still impressed by the variety and depth of the FMA. There are things ranging from headbanging metal anthems to field recordings of sheep to things like the contents of this mix.

This playlist is designed to be relaxing, help you focus, and breathe. Perhaps you'd like to use it to accompany a yoga session, part of a meditation, or possibly even to help you focus while you work on an art project or homework.

If you have a favorite relaxing song or album from the FMA, feel free to comment below! A full description of each song is past the 'Read More' link at the bottom of this blog entry, including license and artist information, in case you are curious about how you can use each song in potential projects, videos, or to accompany your latest aerial gymnastic routine.

At any rate, we hope you will kick back, relax, and enjoy this mix!
